Official Sega Saturn Magazine

Sega Saturn Magazine was a monthly UK magazine dedicated to the Sega Saturn. It held the official Saturn magazine license for the UK, and as such some issues included a demo CD created by Sega, called Sega Flash, which included playable games and game footage. The last issue was Issue 37, Nov 1998. Sega Saturn Magazine was originally known as Sega Magazine which launched in 1994 and covered the Sega consoles available at the time, including the Sega Master System, Sega Mega Drive, Sega Mega-CD, Sega 32X and Sega Game Gear. From November 1995 the magazine was relaunched as Sega Saturn Magazine and coverage of other Sega consoles were gradually reduced and withdrawn in favour of the Sega Saturn.

The magazine was known for its 'grown up' attitude to games and gamers. It was unafraid to enter into discussions with developers about fairly obscure topics such as the development libraries that Sega was providing them with, and would routinely cover topics of interest only to hardcore gamers such as imported Japanese RPGs and beat 'em ups. In fact the magazine actually survived the European performance of its host system by several months, spending those last few issues reviewing games released in Japan (where the machine had been reasonably successful and was still in production) as well as reporting breaking news on the development of the Saturn's successor, the Dreamcast.
